When the tree is gone? That was what I was thinking last week. And so I visited Etsy once more after I found out that Annemarie had opened up an Etsyshop! I love bunting & she makes some great heartshaped ones! Today I received this:
Now I can't wait to get the tree out of the house & put this garland up! :) And although it's a bit dangerous with 3 cats & all, I couldn't resist this little one:
Due to the weather we had a change of plans. We were supposed to go & visit my inlaws in the east of the Netherlands, too bad the weather turned unpredictable with snow & ice. So we made ourselves comfortable & had a little party at home.
Every year on the 6th of december, when Saint Nicolas has left, I put stars in our window.
Usually that's all the christmasdecoration I do for at least a week. It has probably something to do with my calvinistic upbringing ;)! But this year I couldn't resist the little happy box that was next to the stars...
Thanks L. for this happy bunch! ;)
Do you already bring out all the christmasdecorations or do you take it slow as well?
And again I am on this steamtrain heading towards the end of the year, it's no use fighting it so I am just going through the motions. Decorating J.'s school, making a gift for T. at kindergarten, shopping, filling shoes, trying to read all your blogs, knitting, going to the office, visiting a schoolmeeting & coming to the conclusion I just don't have the energy to do it all. And so I just sit on the couch with a cup of tea & enjoy this season of fun, friendship, warmth & happy kids!
